  4. I'm not affiliated with them in any way except I am a fan of the platform and regularly post interesting case-based learning scenarios there. I just posted one about paraspinal angiosarcoma and have others on TBI, neurosurgical instruments, lumbar spine surgery, and more. It's all free and there's some good clinical discussion there. It's also common for folks to remain anonymous there, too, but not always. For example, you can fairly easily track me down based on my profile info, ha. Would be interested to learn if others are on this platform too.
  5. Any fun equipment/devices out there for a hospitalist? I have about $900 of CME funds leftover this year. I have a serviceable stethoscope I bought in April and can’t buy another one til next year (or I would spring for something fancy). I could always find some books, but I’d rather find gadgets. I have pretty wide leeway in using the funds. I can also use the money for iPhone apps, if anyone has favorites.
  6. Hello! I'm a new grad and recently received a job offer and contract. I wanted to see what other PAs thought and things I should negotiate since this is my first experience with this. Position is with a spine surgery practice in Texas: - Salary $90K with yearly bonus "at discretion of CEO." This seems a little low, but hard to negotiate as I have no experience. - 2 weeks paid vacation - In my interview they also stated that major holidays were off as well. Need to clarify if these would be paid or not. Is this reasonable time off or too little? - 5 days sick leave with doctor's note - CME allowance of $2500. They stated in interview that I also would have 5 days for CME, so I need to clarify this with my contract and whether they are paid or not and have this included in writing. - Malpractice insurance is provided "consistent with reasonable surgical physician assistant coverage." Obviously need to clarify whether occurrence or claims maid. And tail or not. - Individual health insurance covered by employer. Family health insurance covered by employee. I only need coverage for myself, so this sounded like a good deal to me. Other than above, I also wanted feedback on my hours. My schedule is described as up to 5 days a week but then later says that 5 days is routine and more days as agreed by PA and physician as needed. Hours may or may not extend past 10 hours per day with workload not to exceed 80 hours a week. There is no mention of call but when discussed they said I should "rarely" be on call. Obviously I'm not trying to get tricked into working 80 hours a week when the job was described as a M-F position. What is the best way to ask that this is clarified and protect myself from being exploited? Appreciate all of your feedback! Thank you!

  8. I am a PA at a FQHC looking to do a side gig injecting botox/fillers. The quality of my training in this area is of high importance. I have seen several 1-2 day training courses and I'd like something more in-depth and rigorous. Anyone have experience with an excellent training program in botox/fillers? TIA
  9. How much is too much to spend on CME? How does your CME allowance (if you have one) influence the programs you attend, if at all? I've been wondering lately how (if) this affects the medical knowledge of some individual clinicians. For example, does anyone feel that they aren't able to learn what they need to because they don't have room in their budget for a particular CME program/course/etc? I know this will also depend heavily on the program in question (I have no particular one in mind right now). I'll easily spend close to $2k for a good conference because I know it'll be reimbursed either by my employer or come tax time if I itemize. Not to mention I'll return a more intelligent clinician than I left. However, I also try to collect as much "non-CME" (or category 2) free open-access medical education as I can throughout the year because who doesn't love a good bargain!

  12. Can anyone recommend a good emergency medicine ultrasound course other than the SEMPA course? I got a taste of US at a conference this summer but have very little experience with it.

  23. Hi Everyone! I'm a few months away from my PANCE and have heard great (and not so great) things about both Hippo and CME4Life. I would love any feedback from anybody who has experience (or a coupon code ;) ) with either.
  24. I am a PA returning to practicing after a hiatus. I had all my 100 Cat 1 CME paid for and nearly completed. But since the NCCPA changed the CME requirements to include 20 credits of Self Assessment CME, now I am looking for suggestions for a way to earn those last 20 SA credits at a minimal cost. I can see the new CME system is designed to shunt more PAs into the AAPA - as with the green O'Connell Recert book and 80Q test for their 20 SA CME credits...but one must be an AAPA fellow member to qualify for these (and other qualifying program) SA credits to the tune of $295 membership. As not working right now this is unanticipated expense. If anyone can suggest something at a lesser cost, that doesn't require jumping thru a bunch of hoops to get it done, I'd greatly appreciate it! Am on the homestretch and eager to get successfully past the PANRE and back to work.
  25. In this article, I discuss all of the details you'll need to know about the two new CME requirements, including links to all resources you could ever need. In addition, I'll review other CME requirements for you, including general Category 1 and Category 2 CME in case you've forgotten or if you're new to the CME cycle process. Hopefully this clears up any confusion. Happy credentialing! http://doseofpa.blogspot.com/2014/04/continuing-medical-education-cme-for.html
